It’s a non-stop, event filled month for Pokémon GO players and the fun is just getting started as we go into the Valentine’s Day celebration weekend, allowing for extra in-game bonuses, new monsters, and the ability to raid, hatch, and catch anything pink!
As a part of this celebration, the ever familiar, Lickitung will be available in raids during a 3-hour event on Saturday (2/15) equipped with the special move, Body Slam, & revealing, to a few, lucky players, a bright & shiny version of himself.
